Annoyed by vuvuzelas? So is Hitler, according to this video parody by the British film-maker Ken McHardie.

Taking footage of Hitler's deranged rant in the bunker from the film Downfall, McHardie shows the Führer shouting that "it sounded like a swarm of bees in my house", and asking: "Are you insane? Ruining the World Cup with a plastic bloody horn?"

The makers of Downfall, who have taken action to prevent the proliferation of internet spoofs of this scene, probably aren't very amused.
